dc.description.abstractHere is a major triumph and a major stroke of luck. Earlier this year, I catalogued Volume I of this two-volume edition and mentioned that it set me on a search for the other volume. How lucky I am to have found it on eBay! Like the first volume, it is a typical large-format French post-WWII edition containing ten fables. The text for each is on the left-hand page, with a full-page illustration on the right. The book, like its partner, has a canvas binding. The illustrations are lively and engaging, from the beginning illustration of the old cat and the young mouse. Other particularly fine illustrations include Le Renard et le Bouc (also on the cover); FS; Le Cochet, le Chat et le Souriceau; FM; and Le Singe et le Dauphin. There is an advertisement for the first volume on the last page.en_US
